Since its formation in 2001 the UKSGA has become the focal point for Senior golfers looking to play competitive Scratch golf on quality venues, in a friendly and supportive environment predominantly in England & Wales.
The Association is affiliated to the European Senior Golf Association (ESGA) and this has influenced the format of the competitive golf offered by UKSGA. With members from 55 years to more than 80 years old we are an inclusive Association providing scratch golf across the entire membership. In addition we enter teams into the ESGA team championships at Seniors (55+), Masters (65+) and Super Masters (75+) every year.
From modest beginnings we now run eighteen 36 hole scratch events across the golfing year from October to September with members qualifying to represent the Association in the ESGA Team championships from our Order of Merits. The golfing year culminates in our National Finals in September.
The Association welcomes applications for membership from male golfers with a WHS index of 4.0 or better. We have more than 450 members including several who have won National Senior titles and represented their countries in European Seniors team championships and/or the Seniors Home Internationals.
While a competitive Association we pride ourselves in ensuring that our members enjoy their golf in a friendly and inclusive environment.

Mark Stokes from Studley Wood GC won his first UKSGA event at Hollinwell GC undoubtably one of the top courses in the country by shooting 73+71 to pip Nigel Evans 68+76 on the back 18 with Paul Nancarrow and David Price finishing one behind on 145. Such was the depth of competition that the CSS remained at 73 on both days. In the S/S Nigel beat David Price by 1 with Charlie Banks in 3rd. In the Masters Chris Reynolds finished ahead of Robert Gill and Ian Dawkins who was helped by a Hole in one on the 5th in his 2nd round. Thank you to Ian for providing us all with what turns out to be a farewell drink for the 2020 season. We only got 6 events in but what a quality 6.
